Nations Descended From Noah
Genesis 10
Taken from the ESV Bible


Genesis 10:1. These are the generations of the sons of Noah, Shem, Ham, and Japheth. Sons were born to them after the flood. 2. The sons of Japheth: Gomer, Magog, Madai, Javan, Tubal, Meshech, and Tiras.

3. The sons of Gomer: Ashkinaz, Riphath, and Togarmah.

4. The sons of Javan: Elishah, Tarshish, Kittim, and Dodanim.

5. From these the coastland peoples spread in their lands, each with his own language, by their clans, in their nations.

6. The sons of Ham: Cush, Egypt, Put, and Canaan. 7. The sons of Cush: Seba, Havilah, Sabtah, Raamah, and Sabtecha. The sons of Raamah: Sheba, and Dedan. 8. Cush fathered Nimrod; he was the first on earth to be a mighty man. 9. He was a mighty hunter before the Lord. Therefore it said, “Like Nimrod a mighty hunter before the Lord.”

10. The beginning of his kingdom was Babel, Erech, Accad, and Calneh, in the land of Shinar. 11. From that land he went into Assyria and built Nineveh, Rehoboth-Ir, Calah, and 12. Resen between Nineveh and Calah; that is the great city.

13. Egypt fathered Ludim, Anamim, Lehabim, Naphtuhim, 14. Pathrusim, Casluhim (from who the Philistines came), and Caphtorim. 15. Canaan fathered Sidon his firstborn and Heth, 16. and the Jebusites, the Amorites, the Girgashites, 17. the Hivites, the Arkites, the Sinites, 18. the Arvadites, the Zemarites, and the Hamathites. Afterward the clans of the Canaanites dispersed. And the territory of the Canaanites extended from Sidon in the direction of Gerar as far as Gaza, and in the direction of Sodom, Gomorrah, Admah, and Zeboiim, as far as Lasha. 20. These are the sons of Ham, by their clans, their languages, their lands, and their nations.

21. To Shem also, the father of all the children of Eber, the elder brother of Japeth, children were born. 22. The sons of Shem: Elam, Asshur, Arpaschad, Lud, and Aram. 23. The sons of Aram: Uz, Hul, Gether, and Mash. 24. Arpaschad fathered Shela; and Shela fathered Eber. 25. To Eber were born two sons: the name of the one was Peleg, for in his days the earth was divided, and his brother’s name was Joktan. 26. Joktan fathered Almodad, Sheleph, Hazarmaveth, Jerah, 27. Hadoram, Uzal, Diklah, 28. Obal, Abimael, Sheba, 29. Ophir, Havilah, and Jobab; all these were the sons of Joktan. 30. The territory in which they lived extended from Mesha in the direction of Sephar to the hill country of the east.

31. These are the sons of Shem, by their clans, their languages, their lands, and their nations.

32. These are the clans of the sons of Noah, according to their genealogies, in their nations, and from these nations spread abroad on the earth after the flood.
